Several people were left injured at a Georgia bar Saturday night after a man drove a truck into the crowd while firing indiscriminately.

The incident took place at 278 South Bar & Grill after the suspect, identified as Eduardo Morales, 34, was ejected from the business for being too drunk. Following the incident, Morales was taken into custody by the Hiram Police Department, police said in a statement.

After he was asked to leave the establishment, Morales left but returned in a short while in his black Dodge Ram 2500 and began firing into the crowd through the window of the vehicle, U.S. News reported.

Police said Morales attempted to back out of the bar after the rampage, but his truck got stuck. When he couldn’t get out of the vehicle, Morales allegedly tried to reload his weapon, but other patrons managed to pull him out of the truck and wrestle the gun out of his hands. Some members of the crowd detained Morales until officers arrived, according to ABC-affiliate WSB-TV.

One person inside the bar was grazed by a bullet, while another patron was struck twice by the vehicle, ABC News reported, citing cops.

A security guard was among those hurt, and a woman sustained a head injury from a fallen beam, according to WSB-TV. A man who tried to snatch the gun from Morales ended up with a broken leg, while another person sustained minor injuries, the outlet reported. All the persons who were injured are expected to survive.

Ydon Gerneus, who was at the bar at the time of the incident, told WSB-TV that a bouncer removed Morales after he smashed two bottles together upon being denied service.

"Twenty minutes later, we heard two gunshots," Gerneus told the outlet. "Me and my partner fell to the floor. All you hear is glass breaking and people screaming and the car comes in through the front door."

Morales was treated for minor injuries before he was arrested. The man is facing aggravated assault and aggravated battery charges. More charges against him are pending, ABC News reported, citing police. It is, however, unclear when he is going to appear in court.
